All is not well in the Valley of Spielburg. Elsa has disappeared (again) and the sheriff has been murdered. The rest of the valley is in chaos and the influx of heroes has done little to calm it. Your job is not done. It's time to go back to Spielburg.
For those of you who haven't played Quest for Glory series: it all started in 1989 when Sierra created first game, combining classic third person point and click adventure with RPG (upgradable statistics, side quests, battles) and on-the-edge humour. Five installments have been released so far. 4 1/2 mixes ripped-off VGA graphics with original story and potentially offensive dialogues and narrator's comments. It is heavily inspired by first chapter - So You Want to Be a Hero: Spielburg and almost all of its citizens are present and story centers around disappearing of Elsa, baron's daughter.
While made with Adventure Game Studio Quest for Glory 4 1/2 is a DOS game. You can experience trouble running it or you may be unable to run it at all. Game is also notable for numerous bugs and frequent crashes. Nothing will be ever done about it - official site is long dead and project not supported anymore. Even official AGS site lists authors as "unknown", so game is now considered something between freeware and abandonware.
Important note for players: Please safe your progress very often in several different save slots. Otherwise you might not be able to complete the game!
